As society is growing and changing, other practices start to change as well. It seems that today, plastic surgery is becoming a more well-known procedure. Stemming from that, cosmetic surgery specifically has become more well-known. There are surgical procedures, and nonsurgical procedures.

In this day and age, cosmetic surgery has increased. According to the Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics, Americans spent more than $13.5 million on combined surgical and nonsurgical procedures in 2015. The data also stated that “cosmetic procedures have increased by 39% over the past 5 years.”(1)

The Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics gave a list of the top five cosmetic surgery procedures in both men and women. Here is a list of the procedures and descriptions of what each of these surgeries are:

Top 5 Cosmetic Procedures for Women

1) Liposuction

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, liposuction “slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion.” This can be performed in different areas of your body that store fat such as thighs, upper arms, back and cheeks, to name a few. As for the cost, the national average is $3,176 according to 2015 statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).(1)

2) Breast Augmentation

This procedure uses breast implants to increase the size of your breasts or restore breast volume. Breast augmentation can increase fullness of your breasts and improve your figure. The ASAPS estimates the cost is around $3,497 for saline, and $3,964 for surgeon fees only. (1)(4)

3) Tummy Tuck

This is also known as “abdominoplasty.” This surgery flattens your stomach while removing excess fat and tightening your abdominal muscles. The ASAPS estimates the cost for this procedure to be $5,891.(1)(5)

4) Breast Lift

This surgery “restores a firmer, perkier, more aesthetically pleasing shape to saggy breasts,” according to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.
